Abstract: Let $ V$ be a rational, selfdual, $ C_2$-cofinite vertex operator algebra of CFT type, and $ G$ a finite automorphism group of $ V.$ It is proved that the kernel of the representation of the modular group on twisted conformal blocks associated to $ V$ and $ G$ is a congruence subgroup. In particular, the $ q$-character of each irreducible twisted module is a modular function on the same congruence subgroup. In the case $ V$ is the Frenkel-Lepowsky-Meurman's moonshine vertex operator algebra and $ G$ is the monster simple group, the generalized McKay-Thompson series associated to any commuting pair in the monster group is a modular function.
